Lorde Ain't Afraid Of No Ghosts

But spectral beings are apparently leaving a 'hum on everything' in the studio.

It doesn't really matter whether you believe in ghosts or not. When they show up, you just kind of have to deal with it.

Just ask Lorde. Because apparently the singer has been haunted by some spectral spirits during sessions for the follow-up to her smash 2013 debut, Pure Heroine. On Monday morning (June 30), the teen queen said she's been visited by a ghost in the machine that is trying to block her from laying down new tracks.

This would, of course, make Lorde just the latest celebrity to bust out her ghost story, but the take away here is that she's back in the studio and we're, hopefully, going to hear some new music soon.

Last month she told the BBC that the music she's working on now is very different from her debut. "I think I've learnt so much as a songwriter, there's going to be so much of an improvement because of that," she said. "I'm working on stuff quite tentatively, it's definitely still at the beginning and yeah, it's totally different. I wrote the last album about that world which was the suburb where I grew up and populated by my friends and people who were really familiar to me. Now I'm in a different place every day and I'm with new people every day and it's a different vibe."
